The Washington Redskins announced Tuesday that they had signed veteran long snapper Justin Snow, who was with the Indianapolis Colts for the past 12 seasons.
Snow replaces long snapper Nick Sundberg on the Redskins’ active roster. Sundberg suffered an arm injury in Sunday’s 40-32 win over the New Orleans Saints and was placed on the injured/reserve list and is designated for a potential return to the team.
The signing of Snow for the Redskins brings some more veteran presence to a youthful team. Snow, who was the Colts’ longest-tenured player prior to being released by the team Aug. 31, made 192 consecutive appearances with Indianapolis from 2000 to 2011 — a very successful period for the team, which appeared in two Super Bowls during that time frame, winning one in 2006.
Snow is also very active in the community — especially near his hometown of Abilene, Texas, where he holds an annual “Special Teamers Camp” for children with special needs.
Snow told ReporterNews.com that he holds the camp in memory of his brother, Brian, who died in 1998 and had cerebral palsy.

A number of Redskins players took to Twitter today to voice their thoughts on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S.
The players aren’t unlike you and me — they remember exactly where they were, what they were doing and how that day changed them forever.
Here’s some of those tweets (and click here for a photo gallery as Redskins.com remembers 9/11):

Safety Jordan Pugh was officially named the newest member of the Washington Redskins Monday, signing with the team following the knee injury to rookie safety Jordan Bernstine.
Pugh, who was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in 2010 out of Texas A&M, appeared in 27 games with three starts in 2010-11. He amassed 22 tackles, one interception, three passes defensed and a forced fumble.
A quick look into Pugh’s background indicates it’s not too surprising to see him excelling at such a high professional level.
